Health & Safety

In a NEW partnership with the League of MN Cities, NJPA is sponsoring the cost for all Regional Safety Groups (RSG's) in Region 5. Regional Safety Groups are a flexible way for members of the LMCIT Workers’ Compensation program to meet state and federal OSHA mandates. LMCIT partners with the Minnesota Municipal Utilities Association (MMUA) to deliver these services.

Regional Safety Groups (RSG's) work as a team to establish a safety committee, hold safety meetings and develop safety coordinators. RSG's develop an ongoing meeting and training schedule at the times, dates and locations that work best for cities in the group. They also identify as many as twelve safety training topics per year.

Fifty percent of training costs are covered by LMCIT and the remaining fifty percent will be covered by NJPA., which makes this opportunity FREE to Region Five Cities.  You can also take advantage of free web-based training endorsed by the National Safety Council and provided through FirstNet Learning and additional access will be given to Damarco, an online SDS database.

NJPA and the LMC can also offer free Mock OSHA Inspections, OSHA safety audits and more additional services at request. 

Regional Safety Groups are free of cost to all Region Five Entities.
